First Ever Comprehensive Secure Email Software Suite to Include Encrypted Messaging, Large File Transfer, Electronic Signatures, and Cloud Storage -- All With a Single Free License
CHARLOTTE, NC, Nov 09, 2011 -- Privacy Data Systems (PDS), a leading provider of award-winning secure email and communications solutions, today announced PDS Basic Edition -- a new free service to help individuals and business professionals to communicate easily and securely online. The first of its kind, this new free service gives users a fully integrated set of privacy tools, including secure email, large file transfer, electronic signatures, and cloud storage -- all under the same service umbrella -- which they have appropriately named the "All-in-One Privacy Suite."
"The new PDS Basic Edition is an easy-to-use free service to help individual business professionals keep their sensitive messages and files secure during transit and storage, globally," stated Ray Blackburn, Privacy Data System's Director of Operations and Client Support. Unsecure email platforms are often the preferred target of hackers, spammers and identity thieves -- especially in the financial services, legal, and healthcare industries. By using PDS' All-in-One Privacy Suite, a service that enables exchanging, tracking and storing of private messages and files, companies and individuals alike can protect sensitive information from the security issues inherent with regular email, FTP and fax transmissions.
"The risks of communicating online are a growing concern worldwide. Providing a new way for business professionals to protect their clients' -- or patients' -- information is critical. Plus, as we all know, the number of compliance regulations is growing each year for the secure management of messages and files transmitted over the Internet," Blackburn continued.
The new free PDS Basic Edition provides:
-- Send unlimited secure messages to anyone
-- Exchange very large files
-- Receive secure messages from others -- via private "contact me" secure
inbox web form
-- Private cloud-based storage vault
-- Sign and Send documents with enforceable electronic signature
Privacy Data Systems has made getting a free account very easy, with no long term commitments. If the user decides to upgrade to the Professional service level, they will be able to receive enhanced capabilities including proof of delivery and recall, larger file options, document rights management, and PDS' exclusive biometric (fingerprint) authentication technology. The Professional service is priced at a fraction of the cost of individual security tools, with annual subscriptions priced at $14.50 per month. Corporate services are also available, for multiple users or those who wish to include custom options and seamless branding.
